On Saturday, March 5th 2011, Rockstar Energy Suzuki rider Ian Trettel sustained a severe head injury during practice at the AMA Supercross event in Daytona Beach. Trettel, a rising rookie, drafted from the amateur Suzuki team had finished 5th in his Supercross Pro Debut this year. He is currently in Atlanta, GA at the Shepard Center for rehab and is making progress every day. Losi is donating a XXX-SCT for the Trettel Auction on eBay via Road 2 Recovery’s store front. This is not just a normal XXX-SCT but is a one of a kind that has been signed by all the superstars of Supercross including James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, Chad Reed, Kevin Windham etc. You can make a bid on this awesome car, as well as other donated memorabilia, directly here, or if you would like to make a donation please visit www.road2recovery.com for monetary donations or by purchasing a t-shirt or bracelet thru www.vurbmoto.com.
DE Racing has released two new colour variations for their recently released Losi Ten SCTE ‘Trinidad’ wheels, with the introduction of white and silver. These wheels include all the same features of our ‘Trinidad’ line with a bolt on OEM fit.
By popular demand JConcepts is bringing the Rulux 12mm hex design to the SC10, SC10 4×4, XXX-SCT and similar wheel offset applications. Rulux wheels are 1:1 inspired and no detail has been missed with these beauties as the Rulux wheel incorporates a lug nut and spoke affect that emulates the real thing. Wheel profile, interior and exterior ribbing and spoke design were all areas of focus while creating the combination of durability, clearance, functionality and appearance. To use the 12mm hex wheel on the SC10 or XXX-SCT it requires an inboard hub conversion for the front and JConcepts new hex adapter at the rear. Precision machined and blue anodised aluminium features a clamping style design that combines durability and functionality.

Having covered the toy fair in depth for Red RC we decided to bring together all the short course related releases for an easy overview, beginning with Durango. On display at their German distributors stand, the Durango DESC410R was making its public debut. Having written in depth about the car here, its basically a longer and wider version of the successful DEX410, with the chassis is made from a sandwich of materials that creates a strong and very stiff backbone for the car, something that could not have been achieved with the aluminium side skirts used on the 1/10th buggy.
